Audiometry (from Latin: audīre, "to hear" and metria, “to measure") is a branch of audiology and the science of measuring hearing acuity for variations in sound intensity and pitch and for tonal purity, involving thresholds and differing frequencies. Typically, audiometric tests determine a subject's hearing levels with the help of an audiometer.

Why Audiometry Is Performed

An audiometry test is performed to determine how well you can hear. This may be done as part of a routine screening or in response to a noticeable loss of hearing.

The common causes of hearing loss include:

01

Birth defects

02

Chronic ear infections

03

Inherited conditions, such as otosclerosis, which occurs when an abnormal growth of bone prevents structures within the ear from functioning properly

04

An injury to the ear

05

Inner ear diseases, such as Ménière’s disease or an autoimmune disease that affect the inner ear

06

Regular exposure to loud noises

07

A ruptured eardrum

The Risks of Audiometry

Audiometry is noninvasive and carries no risk.

How Audiometry Is Performed

There are a few tests involved in audiometry. A pure tone test measures the quietest sound you can hear at different pitches. It involves using an audiometer, which is a machine that plays sounds via headphones. Your audiologist or an assistant will play a variety of sounds, such as tones and speech, at different intervals into one ear at a time, to determine your range of hearing. The audiologist will give you instructions for each sound.
